Senryuu Girl is one of those adorable anime series you just can't get out of your head. Following the story of Yukishiro Nanako, a seemingly normal high school girl with a strange quirk; she can only write in senryuu poems. With this being her only means of communication, it's obvious to see how she'd be considered an outcast amongst her peers. Thankfully, she has the ex-delinquent Busujima Eiji to keep her company as the two work together to revive their school's Literature Club.

Fortunately for anime lovers everywhere, anime series that are just as cute as Senryuu Girl are abundant. From classic tales like Clannad which are all about delinquents who want a better life and strange girls trying to revive long-dead school clubs to Haganai, where a group of outcasts make their own club just for them, you have a lot to choose from! We've narrowed it down to thirteen you absolutely must see if you're a fan of Senryuu Girl

Hachiman Hikigaya clearly isn't one of those people that look on the brighter side of life. In fact, he's quite the opposite, firmly believing that no one is truly happy and that the fleeting joy of youth is just a lie. After writing a negative essay on modern social relationships, his teacher forces him to join the Volunteer Service Club; a group of students who work to help other classmates achieve their goals by assisting them with their issues. For someone who wants nothing to do with other people, Hachiman is the last person to want to help others. However, stuck with the only other member, Yukino Yukinoshita, he begins to grow into his own. If you like character development and a great deal of high school humor, as seen in Senryuu Girl, then My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU is a perfect series to add to your watch list.
